Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman. Director: Ben Wheatley.
Notorious London theatre and film impresario, Michael White might just be the most famous person you've never heard of. In a career that spanned over five decades, he produced 101 stage productions, 27 films and helped shape the careers of international celebrities such as John Cleese, Barry Humphries and Kate Moss. Michael almost single-handedly changed the shape of West End theatre in the 1970s, earning a reputation for the risqué with productions like Oh! Calcutta! and the original Rocky Horror Show, and introducing Merce Cunningham, Pina Bausch and Yoko Ono to London audiences. This trip down memory lane shows how the son of a Jewish glove maker from Scotland became The Man with the Golden Touch, an inveterate gambler, playboy and eccentric friend of the rich and famous.

The Lunchbox (PG)
Middle class housewife Ila is trying once again to add some spice to her marriage, this time through her cooking. She desperately hopes that this new recipe will finally arouse some kind of reaction from her neglectful husband. She prepares a special lunchbox to be delivered to him at work, but, unbeknownst to her, it is mistakenly delivered to another office worker, Saajan, a lonely man on the verge of retirement. Curious about the lack of reaction from her husband, Ila puts a little note in the following day's lunchbox, in the hopes of getting to the bottom of the mystery. This begins a series of lunchbox notes between Saajan and Ila, and the mere comfort of communicating with a stranger anonymously soon evolves into an unexpected friendship. Gradually, their notes become little confessions about their loneliness, memories, regrets, fears, and even small joys. Watch the trailer here | Visit the official site

Still Life (M)
For 22 years, life for the calm and insular John May has been his work for the local council in South London, finding the next of kin for those who have passed away alone. But in this age of "efficiency", John's meticulousness is no longer considered an asset. He's made redundant, and left with one final assignment: a search for the relatives of a neighbour, Billy Stoke. John methodically pieces together fragments of Billy's life; a mix of mischief, misadventure, love and regret, most of all for an abandoned daughter, Kelly. John and Kelly are naturally drawn to each other, and as their friendship blossoms, his outlook opens imperceptibly to life's infinite possibilities...
